Satyam satyam Punah Satyam, YathirAjO Jagath Guru..My means as well as end is Swamy Ramanuja ………

Those were the days where Swamy Parasarabhattar was delivering discourses at his ashram  in  Srirangam  . Many devotees used to attend in large numbers  . Amongst them a  highly learned pundit and a srivaishnava  used to attend  the discourses daily .


The learned pundit  was received with scant respect and  the  srivaishnava  was received with great attention . One disciple who was watching swamy Parasara bhattar’s   indifference reached his Guru and humbly submitted  ,  Acharya !! This pundit is a famous scholar  with high respect among the people in entire kingdom  . How could you be indifferent with him considering his scholarship amongst all the people assembled here . Bhattar replied , My child !! Listen to the discourse  now . After  the discourse you will be able to understand .


In the discourse  Bhattar explained the importance of LORD RAMA’s avataram  which was a  divine gift of free grace to all  . LORD  irrespective of caste or creed or condition extended  friendship with  humble folk like Guhan , Sugriva , Vibhishana and many  living beings  .   LORD went a step ahead  in performing the obsequies of a brahman for jatayu the bird .


He was humble   in accepting food from the hands of Sabari  a tribal and partaking food along with  hanumanjee. Bhattar continued  , The Importance of LORD KRISHNA avatar  was  Lord delivering the Apocalypse of the epic Srimad Bhagavadgita with its charama sloka  and  in rejecting the hospitality of Bhishma and Drona for that of Vidura and so forth .

The reputation of Srirangam comes to LORD RANGANATHAR having mixed with Tiruppan Azhwar as intimately as body and soul . The reputation of LORD OF SEVEN HILLS was as LORD moved freely with the potter kurumbuatta Nambi and  King Thondaman .


 The reputation of LORD VARADARAJA was his friendship with  his dear devotee Sri Thirukachi Nambee  and our LORD NARAYANA of Melkote for accepting Swamy Ramanuja as his father and himself being called Yatiraja Sampath kumara . The discourse had a message for unconditional surrender to Lord Narayana with utmost faith .

Once the discourse was done all the people paid their respects to Bhattar and were leaving .The pundit also came along  along with the citizens .  Bhattar casually asked the pundit ..


Swamin !! whom have you settled to yourself as Ultimate Truth ? The pundit who was attentively listening the discourse answered  ! Some authorities speak of Brahma as Ultimate , Few say It is  Rudra and few schools claim it is Lord Mahavishnu . How can we arrive at a conclusion with so many school of thoughts claiming the supremacy of one over other .


Meanwhile the srivaishnava arrived and paid obesiances to the assembly and took permission to leave . Bhattar casually asked the same question to the srivaishnava .  The srivaishnava politely replied  Swamin ! Adiyen knows none others than whom devareer daily discusses ..the only NARAYANA ..maam” EKAM” ….


Bhattar once again asked Swamin ,  Pray what other truth is available to you ? The srivaishnava replied …For adiyen Means as well as end is Swamy Ramanuja .. my end of salvation is the lotus feet of Swamy Ramanuja …forever  and  said ..

 I seek the  lotus feet of Swamy  Ramanuja  who considered all the worldly things and pleasures as mere nothing (grass) because of his love towards the lotus feet  of Achchuta. He is our Acharya  since he possesses all the auspicious qualities (guNAs) and therefore dayAsAgara  (ocean of  mercy) for uplifting us


Continuing ,  he quotes Embaar’s verse on the divine beauty [azhagu] of Swamy  Ramanuja  and declares in the end

“illai enaaku edhir,  illai enakku edhir, illai enakku edhirE!

“There is none equal to me; none equal to me; none equal to me!”. True! There is NONE equal to us

    Have always enjoyed/learned new things from ur posts. Thank you. However on this one, I’ve this to say: Is this constant obsession about Sriman Narayana’s supremacy here and in other forum’s necessary/relevant in these times? It was okay in the days when Vaishnavas were persecuted. Believe me, we, brought up in ordinary Vaishnavite homes, all take this concept for granted. It is never in question. Aren’t there other teachings of our illustrious guruparampara that are very relevant for today’s kaliyuga days?
